Nd:Glass tapered planar waveguide laser

Hettrick, S.J., Li, C., Mackenzie, Jacob, Wilkinson, J.S. and Shepherd, D.P. (2001) Nd:Glass tapered planar waveguide laser At 14th Annual Meeting of the IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS). 12 - 13 Nov 2001. (doi:10.1109/LEOS.2001.969205).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


We have demonstrated the first use of a tapered waveguide in a planar dielectric geometry. The Nd3+-doped BK7 glass laser had a threshold of 15mW, and a slope efficiency of 42% for a 20% output coupler when end-pumped by a Ti:sapphire laser.
